The first group of children left Kharkiv on August 13 by bus, accompanied by five adults. In two weeks vacationers will return. The first group went to Styria, the second will go on a tour to Lower Austria on August 18.
“We made every effort to make a long journey comfortable: comfortable buses, reliable drivers, first-aid kits, provisions,” said Saenko.
